Refund, Discount & Waiver Policies

Non-Credit Workshop Refund Policy

A full refund is made if a workshop is cancelled. Official withdrawal by seven (7) calendar days prior to the first meeting of workshop results in a refund minus a $10 non-refundable registration fee. Withdrawal beyond that point in time allows for no refund. Please allow 3-4 weeks for processing your refund.
